Seend Fete & Flower Show
The Seend Fete & Flower Show is held each year on the second Saturday in August.
The man in the image above is Ron Westacott, white lining on a fete day. Sadly, Ron has moved on to the Elysian Fields. Ron was very arty - Click this link to see some of his vintage fete artwork.
The Seend Lye Recreation Field is a charitable trust set up to administer and manage the Seend Lye Field, the Irene Usher Memorial Pavilion and tennis courts. The trust is run by volunteer trustees and committee members. Committee members are elected from the organisations using the ‘Lye Field’ facilities. The trust’s assets are held for the parishioners of the Parish of Seend.
The running costs for the Lye Field facilities are in excess of £15,000 per annum and costs are met approximately equally from the following primary sources, investment income, facilities hire/100+ Club and the annual Seend Fete. The combined annual income provides great facilities for many small interest groups and permits organisations, such as the Seend Playgroup, Seend WI, and many others to operate at minimal group costs.
